Oh, Wednesday...

(Warning: Woman talk ahead.)

I know I already did an "Oh, Monday" but today I can't help it. I really do try not to be a whiner but I want my Diet Pepsi back!!! I am only on day 2 and I can't handle it. Am I addicted? Well, there are other circumstances surrounding my "ohhhhh". I decided to give up my precious Diet Pepsi at "that time of the month". The day I quit my bubbly, cool drink was the same day my monthly visitor came and with a vengeance. I was working out at the gym almost everyday then my kids got out of school and I got lazy. I haven't gone in 2 weeks. When I was working out "she" was not so bad but now I have bloating, crankiness, sleeplessness, back discomfort and I feel drained. It's also hot here and I refuse to turn on the A/C until I am sweating.

I am just being a sissy? There are people that give up smoking or alcohol and get through it. I can give up soda. I can try tea again. I have tried it in the past several times and I just didn't like it.

Tomorrow I should be back to my normal self.

Just get through the first few weeks. Then, if you're tempted to take a sip, you'll be shocked at how nasty all the chemicals taste. Go ahead. Read the label on the can or bottle. Yech! Do you really want to put that inside your body?!

Yes, sometimes I do want to put those chemicals in my body, ha ha. They taste good to me right now. But you are right. I found out first hand what you are talking about. Since I have switched to more wholesome foods I can't handle the taste of white bread or corn flakes.
